    Pros

    Great brands.
    Good supply chain.

    I have been working at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time

    Pros

    fair compensation and bonus plan.
    opportunities to develop and promote
    nice per like company car, 401K matching, discount stock purchase plan
    Exciting innovation and acquisitions for future profitability

    Cons

    It's all about Spring Feb -May in south and March-June in north is very heavy in hours and no vacation is granted (minus emergency situations of course). They balance it out in the "off-season" months but it is fast and furious for 4 months. Not a bad thing but also not for everybody.

    Culture is still a little rough around the edges but is improving to be a world class sales organization. Starts at the top with CEO, google him. Style/culture at the top is not for everyone.

    I worked at Scotts Miracle-Gro full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good fast paced busy work. Always doing something. Time seemed to fly. Safe and most the time well ran. Absolutely absolutely love Malcolm and Chase.

    Cons

    The point system... to many bosses. Everyone of them bosses wanted it done the way they would do it but not one of them would be willing to actually do the job u were doing.

    Advice to Management

    U need to look at the big picture of your mules. Some of them bled scotts Miracle-Gro and took pride in there work. And u could care less. I hope no scotts employee mule r management gets the taste that i got handed to me.
